Lovely evening for dining outside. Food was delicious. It was pleasant watching boats pass by before the sun when down

I made the reservations using the Open Table. Upon arrival (after experiencing heavy rain) on the way down, we were seated promptly at a table with a window seat as requested on the app. The server was very courteous and polite offering suggestions to further enhance our dining experience. The fisherman’s platter exceeded our expections.

Great location, waitress was good. Food expensive for what they gave you on your plate. Lobster was over cooked and our food didn’t come out hot but barely warm. The restaurant was also poorly air conditioned. Probably will not go back. This was the second time here in a few months and my previous experience wasn’t great either but I figured I’d give it a second chance.

Booked for busy Saturday night. Waited 20-25 minutes past our reservation for our table. Excellent service from wait staff. Enjoyed the perfectly broiled scallops! The stuffed flounder was just so-so. Overall, an enjoyable experience.

What a fun dinner at Bahr's this weekend. I wanted steamers and my craving made me look up an "old family favorite" that I haven't been back to in at least 15 years.

I started with a Bloody Mary at the bar while we waited to be seated. Yum...it was perfect. Of course we started our meal with steamers and a clam chowder. Unfortunately I forgot about the hot biscuits and delicious cole slaw. By the time our main course came we were stuffed. No problem we packed it up to take home. The coffee and old fashioned hot fudge/butterscotch sundae was the icing on the cake (there is always room for dessert, isn't there?)!

Our server was outstanding and she paced the meal perfectly for us.

We will be back and this time it won't take decades!

Bar service was extremely slow.
Good seafood but not great.
Great views.
Very casual place. If you’re looking for fine dining; this isn’t it.

I would recommend the dining area, the ambiance was nice and the mussels were great! I was not a fan of the front bar. The bartender seemed frustrated whenever we asked her for something. She seemed overwhelmed and there weren’t too many people there.

We were seated quickly. We had requested outside seating and received it. There was live music and it was a beautiful night. The food we got was delicious. We order seafood and it tasted very fresh.

I went there expecting the seafood to be better than your average Joe restaurant since this is a seafood restaurant and it's down by the water and this should be their specialty. I wasnt impressed. The my stuffed flounder lacked flavor and my husband lobster tails were over cooked, very tough and had no flavor what so ever. It was like eating a rubber band. Food was very expensive and you didnt get much and had the food impressed me I wouldn't mind the price so much. Over priced average, flavorless seafood . Beautiful view outside the windows and very friendly staff.

Food is very good. Services are great. But, for a year-round restaurant, prices are fairly steep.

The hostess mixed up our reservation and waited an extra 45+ minutes past our reservation. Seafood was over cooked. When we got seated the view was great and our server was wonderful

Really enjoyed my time at Bahrs.

The staff was really friendly and accommodating with our request for outside seating.

The cocktails were delicious, and it was a great way to start our dinner.

Apart from the great scenery, the lobster dinner roll was amazing. The lobster was delicious and even after a couple of days, I can still savor it.

Highly recommend anyone to take a little trip and enjoy a great meal by the water.

I'm a first time there, drove 2 hours to get there & boy I wasn't disappointed at all. The view was kool, we sat by a window & the food was very good. My only issue which wasn't a big deal were your biscuits they were ok compared to the great tasting food. Thank you for the great experience & food can't wait for the next time

First time back to your restaurant in over 35 years. Ordered chicken francaise and wife had shrimp scampi at 6:00 on 7/28. It took a very long time to get our meals, and the sauce they drowned both with was awful. The food had zero taste.

Thank you Sarah, our server. You were amazing and handled the birthday cake very well. I did mention you to the manager as we left.

When did the menu change? We have been celebrating Birthdays here for years and the new menu took us by surprise- the up tick in price and the choices. We like the other menu much better.
